Flavour of the Week - Marigold

Also referred to as Calendula Oficinalis is arguably one of the healthiest and most beneficial naturally occuring remedies in nature.

Wholly backed by science, rather than tales passed down through generations. Marigold can be used to aid colon cancer, heart disease, to purify the blood and skin conditions.

For the best results it is wise to dry the plant out first. It can then be used to make tea or essential oils. Both being fairly simply processes.

Alternatively the plant and the stem can be juiced and used in conjunction with other fresh fruits.

Flavour - Musty, hay, earthy.
